Sex & Nudity

  • The pop star Gazelle is always shown wearing a small top and skirt, which reveals her midriff and thighs. At the end of the movie, while performing at a concert, she shakes her behind to the camera and is surrounded by tiger backup dancers, all of which are only wearing small shorts.
  • There is a scene in the film where the protagonists visit a "nude spa/naturalist club" which has animals that do not wear any forms of clothing, a departure from the rest of the film where the animals are depicted with clothing. There's no visible genitalia, but the areas where they would be are prominently shown.
  • A joke about a pregnant camel, there's even a joke about rabbits and multiplying.
  • A shrew is shown pregnant later after her wedding takes place earlier in the film.

Violence & Gore

  • The film contains some scenes of tension where savage animals chase the protagonists, as well as a sequence where Nick and Judy struggle with sheep for control over a moving train.
  • Judy gets scratched by Gideon Gray when she is young, in the beginning of the movie.
  • A character is scratched in the leg and blood is visible.

Profanity

  • The word "idiot" may be used
  • Some name-calling between the two, including "dumb bunny" and "dumb fox."
  • There are two misuses of 'God' (i.e., "Oh my God") and a few other lighter versions of mild language.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • There is a plant-based poison that makes animals go furious and attack other animals upon contact with the plant's substance. The main characters visit the location where this is being cooked into a blue liquid in a lab that is similar to the one used on the show "Breaking Bad". Later during the scene, another character on the telephone mentions "Walter and Jesse not having arrived yet". These names may also be references to characters from the TV show, "Breaking Bad".
  • The movie has a sub-message reminiscent to the drug war of the modern world.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Judy thoughtlessly lets her latent prejudice lace a public announcement with hurtfully negative and speculative generalizations about a minority, something that makes Nick storm out of the conference in anger. As a result, she watches in horror as she learns that she has fanned the flames of community tensions and resigns from the police force in shame. This is one of the most powerful scenes in the movie, and it can even upset viewers.
  • There are a few scenes of children sadistically bullying each other, which may be upsetting.
  • The entire movie deals with very mature themes for a kids' movie and contains several intense scenes in thriller fashion, including two jump scares.

Spoilers

The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • Manchas is suddenly attacked by a vicious Emmitt Otterton and one of his eyes is blinded, leaving him screaming in pain. The actual cutting is not seen.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Nick's flashback sequence (which included some bullying) may upset younger viewers.
  • Some may be shocked when Nick, acting like a wild animal, bites Judy at her neck making her scream. It turns out to be acting and they are both okay.
  • At a museum, Nick appears to be poisoned with a serum (via a small blob fired out of a dart-gun-like firearm) after being shot by Bellwether, that makes him revert to his predatory instincts and threaten to eat Judy. It's revealed that he and Judy were just faking it to expose Bellwether's evil plan, by replacing the serum with blueberries from Judy's family farm. This scene is very startling.
